A skilled decorative painter, Edward Hicks preached his Quaker ideology through his iconic Peaceable Kingdom, which he executed over sixty times. The theme of this work, drawn from verse by the biblical prophet Isaiah, uses a charming menagerie of beasts and children to connect Isaiahs message of harmony with William Penns 1681 treaty with the Delaware Valleys Lenni Lenape. Learn more about the Hicks and this work in an interactive discussion with docent Ginny Powell-Brasier.
